New York Giants 21
Dallas Cowboys 17
Maybe Tony Romo will change his pre-game vacation plans next season.
Get the boobs ready, Jessica Simpson. Tony will need some consolation this week.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo knows he has to watch out for New York Giants defensive star Michael Strahan on the field when their teams square off this Sunday, but the lineman has Romo's back in other respects.
When asked yesterday what he thought about Romo's South of the Border jaunt with sexy singer Jessica Simpson, Strahan said he'd do the same thing.
"Heck, if Jessica Simpson wanted to date me, I may give her a shot," said the Giants Hall of Fame-bound defensive end, who is recently divorced.
DECEMBER: Jessica Simpson cheered on Tony Romo at Texas Stadium. Normally loyal Dallas fans were livid when he had a terrible game and the Cowboys lost.
Tony's teammate, Terrell Owens, even jokingly chided the quarterback for being distracted by Simpson, who won't be there for the big game Sunday.
As for Michael Strahan, well, he's in Tony Romo's corner.
"I can't blame the guy," Strahan said.
She may not be as reviled as Kelly Tilghman, but Jessica Simpson isn't what you'd call popular among sports enthusiasts these days.
At least not among Cowboys fans.
She's been touted as the rival New York Giants' secret weapon this coming Sunday, when her boyfriend Tony Romo leads his Dallas team into battle.
The "singer" faced criticism from Dallas fans after she rooted on Romo at Texas Stadium December 16 when the Cowboys lost to Philadelphia.
Simpson wore a pink jersey. Romo had his worst game ever.
Jessica Simpson may be hot, and from Texas, but Dallas Cowboys fans don't care - they just want Tony Romo focusing on the damn football game Sunday.
Well, perhaps because of the scrutiny Tony Romo has received from all this, it now looks like she's gonna sit Sunday's Cowboys-Giants game out.
Jessica's PR rep said: "She is not attending. She is working on a new album. She'll be watching [on TV] and cheering him on."
By their fruits - or at least their cahoots - ye shall know them as Tonica.
Tonica, as in Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson, according to a new Sporting News football column. Tonica, as in a more scrutinized and entertaining, if slightly less beautiful, couple than Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.
Tonica, as in the single organism that threatens to devour the Super Bowl dreams of the Dallas Cowboys. Perhaps you've heard that Romo and Simpson - with some of his Cowboys teammates - vacationed in Mexico last week.
If you're a Cowboys fan, that means you'll be subjected all week to deathly serious speculation that Tonica's powers of distraction are too potent for the QB to complete the task at hand - beating the rival Giants Sunday.
Is Jessica Simpson a distraction for Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo?
Dallas has been the better of the two teams all year, but lately, celebrity gossip mongers have hit the TV and radio airwaves and the blogosphere to forge a link between Simpson and Romo - and any of the Cowboys' imperfections.
The strains of angst rose up at Thanksgiving, New Year's Eve and now this week, resuscitating talk that Romo fumbled away last year's playoff game because of another celebrity girlfriend - Carrie Underwood - on hand.
Even star teammate Terrell Owens got in on the act after the Cowboys' loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last month - a game attended by Simpson that was, wouldn't you know it, the worst statistical game of Tony Romo's career.
"Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite in this locker room," Terrell Owens joked. "I think a lot of people feel like she's taking his focus away."
Can Tony Romo keep his focus? Or is this oversexed QB destined to implode Sunday? Wouldn't it be good to be Matt Leinart and focus only on partying?
Well, that's one way to relax before the playoffs.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and girlfriend Jessica Simpson jetted off to Los Cabos, Mexico, on Friday night for a little poolside vacation with some of his teammates - and Jessica's
The hot pair - enjoying a post-New Year's break before Tony Romo's playoff
loss battle against the New York Giants next weekend - kept it low-key by staying at a private pad in a gated community with their own chef.
Look for Jessica to be there in her pink Romo jersey to watch an over-sexed, distracted Tony throw four interceptions in defeat next Sunday.
Simpson and the NFL star have gotten cozier in the past few months. They spent the recent holidays together in Dallas and even showed some late-night PDA while partying at Hollywood club Teddy's in December.
It looks like at least some of Tony Romo's teammates have warmed up to Jessica Simpson. Somehow, though, we doubt Terrell Owens was in Cabo.
Jessica Simpson is getting back to her roots.
No, we're not talking about being a reality TV ditz.
The reputed singer and actress has begun recording a country album.
"I am a country girl," she said. "I grew up in Texas, and country music was what I listened to. I always wanted to wait until the time was right."
These boobs were made for giving country music a shot.
So why now? Well, what the hell else is there to do? Simpson's most recent flick, Blonde Ambition, was
a complete bomb given only a limited theatrical release and 2006's Employee of the Month also blew failed to find a big audience.
Her last pop CD, 2006's A Public Affair, also
sucked ass underperformed.
"Writing is a release for me," Jessica Simpson said of writing some of her own songs on the new record. "It's a way for me to tell my story... It's been a while since I have opened the book." We didn't actually know she could read.
In addition to the new country album, Simpson is also working on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo - if you know what we mean! We mean they're dating, and from his angle, it's not because of her brains or personality.
Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood have each dated Tony Romo. The beautiful celebrities have shown affection for the star quarterback in very different ways, however:
Jessica sported a lame, pink Dallas Cowboys jersey and posed for the camera at every opportunity; Carrie remained under the cheering radar, scarcely acknowledging the relationship with Romo to newspapers.
As you can see in the photo comparison below, the two singers have opposing ways of supporting the troops, as well:
After many - including teammate Terrell Owens - blamed Jessica Simpson for his team's loss last Sunday, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo overcame the taunts of Carolina Panthers fans Saturday night and pulled out a win.
The Cowboys' 20-13 victory came despite thousands of fans wearing Simpson masks and blonde wigs, and after a week of controversy following the star QB's terrible game in Dallas attended by a pink-Romo-jersey-wearing Simpson.
ESPN says Simpson was present Saturday night but was not seen on camera. In a post-game press conference, Tony Romo discussed the Jessica drama.
"I just put tunnel vision on," he explained. "There's so many distractions. I felt like the important thing for my team was to get myself into football mode 24/7."
When asked if the attention and anger (jokingly and otherwise) from Cowboys fans directed at himself and Jessica Simpson had bothered him, Tony Romo replied:
"I try to just let it roll off my back. It doesn't really bother me, to be honest. But it hurts me when it hurts the people that are close to you. I thought that some of the journalistic integrity this week was poor in some ways."
Taunting Tony Romo, a young fan holds up a mask of Jessica Simpson, which looks almost exactly like her except that it can't sing or act. Come to think of it...
Last week, Tony Romo completed just 13 passes and threw three interceptions, the worst game of his career. Yesterday, the stud muffin completed 28 passes and threw for 257 yards and just one interception as Dallas improved to 13-2.
Jessica Simpson's professional performance so far this weekend has not been as impressive. Her latest movie, the romantic comedy Blonde Ambition, was released in just eight theatres and on its opening day grossed just $384.
Welcome, celebrity gossip fans across the world, to The Hollywood Gossip Caption Contest. Let's take a look at who won this past week's edition, featuring alleged singer / actress and annoying Cowboys fan, Jessica Simpson ...
"Is your end zone really THAT good?"
A day after calling out Jessica Simpson for showing up and distracting Tony Romo during the Dallas Cowboys' loss to Philadelphia, star receiver Terrell Owens is now saying he was kidding and didn't mean to cause trouble.
"I tried to get [Tony Romo] to call her so I can explain to her that she doesn't really know me and that I can be funny," Terrell Owens, a.k.a. T.O., told the Dallas Morning News. "Everything I say, the media will take it and run with it. It's not a big deal. I will try to rectify the situation between her and I."
We can only imagine the hilarity that would ensue if said phone conversation were to actually take place. Probably something along the lines of this ...
Terrell Owens: Jessica, it's TO. I want to rectify this situation.
Jessica Simpson: I don't rectify on the first phone call.
TO: What if I hung up and called back?
JS: [pauses] Well, that would make it our third phone call; let's do it.
[TO hangs up and calls again]
[TO calls back, Crazy Joe Simpson answers this time]
Joe Simpson: Joe Simpson.
TO: Um, this is Terrell Owens. I, uh, I was...
Joe Simpson: Are you threatening one of my employees?
TO: Look man, I-
Joe Simpson: No YOU look, man. I run the show around here, y'understand? I have a lot invested in Jessica, and I sure as hell don't need your-
TO: I'm just trying to rectify...
Joe Simpson: You can rectify my foot up your ass, boy. And quit complainin' you don't get the ball enough. Tony is doin' his best out there. But... out of curiosity, are you single?
TO: Um... I'm often double-covered these days because I'm an exceptional talent. One for the ages, really. But I'm not dating anyone, if that's what you mean. But Tony and Jessica are going out, so...
Joe Simpson: So what?!? She can date you both. Twice the exposure, right? We can make a movie about it. Jessica Simpson Does Dallas Cowboys. I'll produce it.
TO: Isn't that a bit awkward, I mean...
Joe Simpson: And I have another daughter named Ashlee. Can she play running back for you guys?
TO: Julius Jones and Marion Barber do a fine job already. Can you just tell Jessica we're all good? No hard feelings?
Joe Simpson: Know who was hard a lot? That Nick Lachey guy. Because he got to see my hot daughter naked.
Jessica (in the background): Dad! I need help with this bra!
Joe: Coming, dear! [hangs up]
Despite Terrell Owens' best efforts to rectify the situation between Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson... pimp/father Joe Simpson just confused him thoroughly.
